Collateralized Bond Obligation (CBO)

Investment-grade bonds backed by a collection of junk bonds with different levels of risk, called tiers, that are determined by the quality of junk bond involved. CBOs backed by highly risky junk bonds receive higher interest rates than other CBOs.

Collateralized Bond Obligation

An asset-backed security backed by the receivables on junk bonds. Issuers of CBOs package and sell their receivables on bonds they hold to investors in order to reduce the risk coming from defaults. Returns on CBOs are lower risk than the individual bonds backing them. This is because it is unlikely that all or even most of the junk bonds will default. This makes the collateralized bond obligation investment grade and therefore banks are allowed to invest in them. See also: Collateralized Loan Obligation, Collateralized Mortgage Obligation.
